Having been a Graphic Designer/photographer for 15 years for one of the biggest media companies in The Netherlands I decided to take my photography to a new level when I moved to the UK. I started my company Jeff Pardoen Photography in October 2015. Wedding Photography is my greatest love. I love the tension of photographing a whole day, from pre-wedding preparations to the festivities at night capturing the signature moments that fill that special day.
Your wedding day is a day to cherish for the rest of your life. There is so much going on, so much is happening, the day often goes by like a blur. I will freeze signature moments for you from the moment of preparation to the festivities in the evening so the two of you can relive those moments for the rest of your lives after that tumultuous day is behind you.
I photograph in a non intrusive manner. I am a laid-back person, I love to blend in with the scene often to the point you will not even notice I am there. During the formal portraits and family shots I will be more in the foreground but even though it may sound a little strange, my day would be perfect if people would say "was there even a photographer present today?" 🙂 All kidding aside, I will make sure I will get the moments that matter. The two of you have more than enough to think about, don't worry about the photos, I will take care of that.
I am a Dutch national and moved to the UK in August 2014 in search of a new challenge. I have always loved this country since the first time I came here when I was 19 during my art academy days. I have settled in beautiful North Yorkshire and love the outdoors. A few minutes drive brings me either to the beach on one side and on the other side the North York Moors are right around the corner. The beauty of either of them still excites me and brings me joy!
I am doing my bit for the community by being a Coastguard Rescue officer. We assist people in need on the stretch of coastline covered by me and my team mates in Redcar Coastguard.
I hope to meet you face to face soon and have the honour to be part of your special day!
